Wearing the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower discreetly indicates to people around the wearer including staff, colleagues and health professionals that they need additional support, help or a little more time. Take a minute of your time to watch our video to find out more.
If you would like to share your experience of wearing the Sunflower or would just like to discuss what the Sunflower means to you, we would love to hear from you. Email us at Sunflower Stories. and we will get in touch!
As of now, it is compulsory to wear a face covering on all public transport in Wales. Wear one if you can, but please be conscious that there are exceptions for certain conditions and hidden disabilities.
When you carry a Hidden Disabilities Sunflower face covering exempt card, you are indicating that you have a hidden disability and have a good reason not to wear a face covering.
Our inaugural Hidden in Heritage Festival took place on Saturday 1 August 2020. It was the first festival in the world, as far as we are aware, that exists to shine a light on hidden disabilities in heritage.
From 24 July face coverings will be mandatory in all shops in England. The Government's guidelines include exemptions for certain conditions and hidden disabilities. Our poster helps raise awareness of these exemptions and is available for free to print and hang in your shop to show your support to Sunflower wearers who are face covering exempt.
